Nice Nolan Ya, Episode 2: ‘Memento’


The mission: To take a retrospective look at each of Christopher Nolan’s films in advance of the release of his newest movie, Dunkirk, on July 21, 2017 (Be sure to check out the first episode, which covers Nolan’s first film, Following).

Memento, Christopher Nolan’s 2000 follow-up to Following was a popular success and even more structurally complicated than his debut. Alex, Ali and Gautham discuss whether Guy Pearce’s lead role shows more depth than the opaque, almost symbolic characters in Following. Does Memento have what Alex calls the ultimate test of a classic – rewatchability?
